wedding style

my wedding mood board (click to enlarge)

I have been busy doing all sorts of wedding prep, and some words come to mind:

fun: Yes, admittedly it has been more fun than I thought. Who doesn't love being a little self-indulgent now and then?

expensive: Um, I am embarrassed to admit what I have spent on this wedding. Well, parts of it. At least I came to my senses last weekend and decided to return the second pair of shoes...

nostalgic: This sounds weird, but in a way I am sad that we are getting married already. I think I many have mentioned this before, but I hate it when firsts come and go. First dates, first kisses, etc. You never get that excited feeling back! I am a little sad that our wedding will be one day and then just a memory. But on the flipside, I know the marriage is the important thing, not the wedding. That said, I miss it already.

educational: I read an article the other day about how a bride learned that she had been a very bad wedding guest until she got married! Didn't buy off the registry, sent her response card very late, brought a date without letting the bride know, wore the wrong shoes as a bridesmaid... I think I have been guilty of a couple of those crimes but never again! 

insomnia inducing: Anxiety definitely runs in my family and I was not spared this lot. If there is even a tiny thing to worry about, I'm up all night. Hence, my wedding mood board. I'd rather have the sleep. 

entertaining: We have met some real characters through all of this, from the mean lady at a dress shop to the crazy lady at a florist. Bunch of weirdos in the Atlanta wedding scene!

touching and incredibly flattering: I have received the nicest thoughts, notes and kind words from people since we got engaged. I am so honored that people even care what I am doing! People have been more than generous to us and it is so so appreciated.

2 weeks, 6 days!

I'm sure everything will turn out great. And of course - as I always say - it's the stuff that doesn't go to plan that makes all the great stories to remember!!
